1. William Haskell and Marie Tybbot have a LOT of descendants, but perhaps not as many as one would think. That’s because descendants intermarried and produced people like me, who are descended from them twice. They are my 9 times great grandparents.
William Haskell’s English origins have been proven. He was born 8 November 1618 in Charlton Musgrove, Somerset, England. He married Marie (Mary) Tybbot on 6 November 1643 in Gloucester, Essex, Massachusetts and lived out their lives there. I don’t know if there was some type of pestilence epidemic in Gloucester in 1693 or if William and Marie were one of those couples who passed away within a short time of each other, but Marie died in 16 August 1693 and William followed only four days later on 20 August 1693.
I am descended from two of their sons, William and Mark. Here are the lines:
2. William Haskell married Mary Brown
3. Ebenezer Parsons married Lydia Haskell
4. Isaac Parsons married Hannah Burnham
1714-1767 Abt 1721-aft 1759
Each of those families spent their lives in Gloucester, Massachusetts.
Generation 5, John Haskell married Hannah Parsons, is where the two lines come together. John and Hannah were third cousins. They likely knew their was a distant family relationship because Hannah’s grandmother was a Haskell, although Lydia Haskell Parsons died before her granddaughter was born.
The second line, from Mark Haskell, is:
2. Mark Haskell married Elizabeth Giddings
3. William Haskell married Jemima Hubbard
4. Nathaniel Haskell married Hannah White
Each of these families also lived out their lives in Gloucester, with the exception of Mark Haskell’s widow who married (1) John Dennison and removed to Ipswich, Massachusetts.
Nathaniel and Hannah were the parents of John Haskell who married Hannah Parsons from my first Haskell line. The descendants continue now as one line:
5. John Haskell married Hannah Parsons
John and Hannah were the first generation to leave Gloucester and move to New Gloucester, Maine.
6. William Tarbox married Judith Haskell
William and Judith lived out their lives and raised their family in New Gloucester, Maine.
7. George Rogers Tarbox married Mary Elizabeth Scripture
George Tarbox first moved to Lowell and then Newburyport, Massachusetts before marrying Mary Elizabeth in Nashua, New Hampshire. They finally settled in Calais, Washington, Maine.
8. Calvin Segee Adams married Nellie F. Tarbox
9. Charles E. Adams married Annie Maude Stuart
10. Vernon Tarbox Adams married Hazel Ethel Coleman
11. George Michael Sabo married Doris Priscilla Adams
12. Linda Anne Sabo, me
I’ll be posting a couple more of my double lines in the future, including my very tangled Lakin line, with several lines of descent. Do you have any triple lines?
